Pliny the Younger was Pliny the Elder’s nephew, in the case of this beer, the "Younger" is a triple IPA. Pliny the Younger is hopped three times more than our standard IPA, and is dry hopped four different times.

Thanks to cquiroga for this sample. Poured a medium to deeper golden/amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, oranges, caramel, and pine. Tastes of citrus, pine, caramel, and grapefruit. Light to medium alcohol burn in the finish. Some lacing left on the glass.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2006 Thanks to hopdog for sharing this hand bottled. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a medium bubbly white head. Aroma was a nice mix of orange, pine and floral from the hops with a great toffee/caramel balance. Flavor of citrus, pine, bitter with some of the alcohol coming through. 9-4-8-4-17 Re-rate on tap at Union Jacks. Flavor and aroma notes stay about the same. But the fresh draft version I had to rate higher than the hand bottled sampled I had before.

The Elder’s little brother that can certainly kick your butt 8 ways to next Wednesday. I had this at Liar’s Club and was pretty damn excited about it. In small doses, this is a gem. If I drank this all day, I’d certainly get into heaps of trouble. This is a fine example of hop gravy. I’d love to see this and Maharaja in a steel cage match in my backyard with me as the referee who doesn’t pay too much attention to dirty moves.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - APR 24, 2006
On Tap @ Liars Club: Beautiful dark amber color. Small, but fluffy head. Somewhat thick, sweet mouthfeel. Very hoppy. Good stuff. Not a beer I could drink every day. A little too sweet for my taste. Good stuff, but I prefer the Elder MUCH more.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2007 Big cloudy amber pour...whitish head. Nice citric hop aroma...deep and resiny. Great fruity hop flavor with a ton of grapefruit, herbs, cara-malts, and a tinge of light toffee to balance this big boy. Full bodied, almost syrupy...a real treat. Nice lingering bitterness in the end. Great big IPA.

badgerben (4595) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 8, 2006
Handbottled via CharlesDarwin. Light copper color with a thin head. Major Cascade aroma with oodles of citrus. Strikingly bitter taste with a very solid and slightly sweet malt base. Couldn’t even taste the alcohol; I would have thought it a session beer!

billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - MAR 29, 2006
Tap @ Liar’s Club. Beautiful clear golden copper color with off white head. Aroma of apples, brandy, semi sweet malt, & potent resinious hops. Flavor is potent as described above with hops and hop burn pronounced throughout. Very rich, lucious, full bodied flavor. Like a barleywine, with the alcohol very well integrated. This is a class offering, very, very nice.

egajdzis (5545) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Poured a bright golden color with a medium sized, creamy, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops, citrus fruits, tons of resin, caramel malts, and light alcohol. Strong pine in the taste, more citrus fruits, bitter grapefruits, with some sweet malts, and alcohol in the finish. Much more enjoyable than DFH 120.

6th annual Bistro IIPA fest. Dry hop bitterness. Slightly hazy amber with a small, off-white ring. Excellent lace. Very high in alcohol; very piney bitter. Too alcoholic. Almost tastes like cough syrup. Reminiscent of DFH 120 which has double the ABV. Good balance despite the alcohol load and pretty good amount of sweetness.

12oz bottle hand bottled via trade with awaisanen! - Thanks Andy - Pours amber with a nice creamy white head that stayed fairly well and laced the tulip on the way down. Nice aromas of grapefruit and pine and also some floral hops. Flavor is nice and a little more mellow citrus. Oranges, peaches, grapefruit, pine, all over caramel malts with a nice spicy bitter finish. Body is full and mouthcoating with no sign of the alcohol at all. I found this a little more smooth and creamy on the palate than the elder was and also a little more balanced. Very tasty!
